Pen Pals for greater understanding

Our school, the Wae Center in West Orange, New Jersey (USA) has a new club for international pen pals.  The club was started five months ago and already we’ve made many new friends in such faraway places as Estonia, Lithuania, Turkey, Uganda, Thailand, Germany, Italy, Denmark, Fiji, the Czech Republic, Poland, and China.

I firmly believe we are helping, in our little way, to foster greater understanding between us and our neighbors.  Our pen pals in Thailand and the Baltic countries were curious to know about our traditions for celebrating Easter and Passover in the US, and in return they shared some of their traditions with us.  So we are learning many things from our new friends worldwide!
